Rules:
1.New players are always welcome.
2.Double check to make sure you completely filled out the nation sheet.
3.If I haven't specified something, you can make it up yourself. But nothing too extreme without my permission. For example, if I say your in a forest, you can say that it's made up of only oak and maple trees. What you cannot do is say that there is a native tribe of cannibals hidden in the trees.
4.If you have questions or feel I've done something wrong, feel free to ask or correct me.
5.I'll overlook how your species could have evolved, but not how they currently exist. For example, I'll allow a ants with lungs which allow them to grow very large, but not a chipmunk that's the size of Mt.Everest and only eats a leaf a day. Unless you have an unbelievably good explanation.
6.No aliens.
7.You can do virtually anything in this, but if you do something really stupid that I don't like, for example start a space program when your in the iron age, I'll probaly say a tornado hits and destroys the program.
8. I may change the rules or the character sheet if they need changing. I probaly won't though if your strongly against it.
This country RPG differs from others because you will not play as humans, and you must play as a different species. This species will still be smart enough to eventually build a civilization though. I'd prefer something unique, like a race of giant owls who worship leaf gods, but if you really want to play as elves I'll probaly allow it.
How this works: You will post an action and I will post a reaction. Then you post another action and I post another reaction. You can interact with other players and I may decide to force you to interact with other players, in-game. For example:
You: I send twenty chipmunk gatherers to get nuts.
Me: Your chipmunk gatherers get you enough food to last your entire village about a month.
Another player: I attack the chipmunk tribe to steal their nuts with my elephant warriors.
Your posts will usually be a few sentences though. Everyone will start in a place similar to England, but the exact geography like locations of rivers and forests can change. Everyone will spread out into neighboring areas after the game gets going. You delete everything in brackets in the nation sheet. Those aren't the only questions you answer though, just examples. The more detail you put in the less I make up for you.
Name of Race: (Owleans? Drakkgihn? What will you choose?)
Your Location: ( Are you in a thick forest? Are you on the coast?)
Hierachy: (Does your race elect a president? Do you have slaves? Do you have elders?)
Military: (Do you have spearman? Is it men only? Do you have one big army or smaller squads?)
Physical Description: (This one is pretty straight forward. But genders may differ.)
Mental Description: (Are your people all geniuses, or are they idiots? Do they have innate respect for each other? Are they warmongers naturally?)
Other:( Anything that doesn't fall into the other categories.)

Sorry for posting this a second time, but the first one didn't show up when I checked on it a few minutes after I posted it.

I posted on the other one...if this is the one we are going with, and im assuming it is, so I will start over by copy pasting what I had.

Name of Race: Drakvianian
Your Location: mountain side, we live in mountain caves. we prefer heat, however it is no matter being that mountain altitude usually makes it colder anyway. each individual dragon lives in a carved area in the mountain cave. its like land of the ompa lompa's in Charlie and the chocolate factory, but in caves.
Hierarchy: we have an elder council, consisting of 5 very old dragons who know much about the lands. they become replaced only when they die.
Military: being a race of dragons, everyone participates in wars. its much like ancient Sparta.
Physical Description: we are all different, most of us are red or purple but some more extravagant colors. nothing is ridiculous like rainbow though.
Mental Description: we are very headstrong. dragons are noble and honorable, we take these qualities. on an IQ basis, we are average, but the elders are extremely smart.
Other: we eat anything meaty. everyone gathers food for themselves, which is simple because we eat pretty much any living thing. we have no natural predators. we have no enemies as of now, but trust me, if a race pisses us off, we will attack. we have no preferences to anything, and luxury means almost nothing to us. we wear armor in battle, but no other time, since we would never need it. (and we wouldn't need it in battle either).

just a problem...there is really no basis to this. my civilization is a colony of dragons. what exactly am I supposed to do..?

I'm going to fill in the gaps for your civilizations. You can change anything I put in for you that you don't like. Your goal is to win, and I'm going put below possible victories. I'll have a scenario each turn though to make the game more interesting. You are also basically are the whole government and you decide what descisions they make. You can decide how long each of your turns are. Just say at the bottom *For five years* or however long you want it to be.

Scientific Victory- Your people find a method to get to another planet and make it livable. This could be done by terraforming mars, simply getting to Alpha Centauri, or even building a new solar system with a livable planet in it.

Conquest Victory- Rule all people on earth. This could be done by using sheer military might by expanding your country, or being voted in as global president by the united nations. United Nations does not currently exist.

Destroyer Victory- Being personally responsible for the destruction of all ife on earth. This could be done through nuking the globe, or making a supervolcano erupt.

Wealth Victory- Have your government have money equal or greater than the combined wealth of all people, globally, not in your government.

Name of Race: Rychusiors (preying-mantis beings)
Your Location: You Choose
Hierachy:
- King
- Council
- Wealthy Peoples
- Mid Peoples
- Poor Peoples
- Slaves
Military: One huge army, and lots of spears!
Physical Description: Silver, three horns on head. They average three feet in height.
Mental Description: Respect, yet love war.
Other: Cannibals! (sometimes)

The Rychusiors have lived fairly peacefully for several decades in lean-tos beside trees in the middle of a large forest within the middle of the country. Now, however, a plague has hit their main food source: the moss deer, averaging three feet in height. Losing about eighty percent of their food, they are turning to their next favourite accesible food: other Rychusiors. Cannibalism is reaching an all new high, and if the government doesn't do something, there won't be any slaves or weak bodied people within the year, and the whole colony will be near dead within five years.

A group of ten Drakvianians are stirring up trouble in your colony. For most civilizations, a group this small wouldn't make a difference, but the size, and through extension the amount they eat, your colony is only eighty Drakvianians. The rebels, calling themselves Darkziarians, believe that the current political set up is corrupt and that the elders are only doing what is in their best interests, not in the interests of the society in whole. They are slowly convincing the population to join their side and kill off the population, then start up a democratic system of government. *If the Darkziarians suceed, then you simply switch to control the new government. The colony would be in chaos for a while though, and there would likely be a new group of rebels who support the old way of elders who cause trouble.*

before I do anything I want to know this:
am I a drakvainian myself, or am I more like a god controlling them?

More like a god controlling the minds of the government. You don't have complete control though, and there may be a lord or something like that who argues against you. You are not worshipped though, as you do not really exist.

a group of drakvainians go and ask the drazarians why the are making these ridiculous assumptions.
